Repeaters & Nets

Net Listings

Nets offer a good way to test equipment and to gain experience in good operating practices. GCARES urges all members to check into nets whenever possible.
More nets will be added as we confirm them and we will attempt to keep this information up to date.  Please let us know of any changes or errors.  Send the info to the webmaster.

    ARES Nets

    GCARES Net at 9 p.m. every Tuesday  on 146.91 repeater. Followed by Digital Training Net and Mesh Discussion Net. You do not need to be a GCARES member or a resident of Greene County to participate. All are welcome.

Send a Winlink message to W8LRJ via either using the Winlink gateway at 445.01 MHz simplex, Winmor, or via Winlink Telnet any time on Tuesday between 6 am and 9 pm. All messages will be acknowledged.

Your GCARES Winlink Net, please use the following format: Callsign, Name, City, County, ARES District, State, and How Connected (Frequency and Callsign of Winlink Gateway or Telnet). As an example, that would be

If you use Telnet, put //WL2K at the beginning of the Subject or the message may not get through. Remember that a Winlink Net is NOT like a conventional net where all participants meet simultaneously. All messages will be acknowledged on Wednesday.
